The Dog and Badger had an interesting ‘gallows’ pub sign suspended over the street to the adjacent building. The sign was probably only about six feet long. The pub itself was a simple stone building with two square bay windows and a central porched entrance. The building still stands and has now been incorporated into Inchbrook print works at 72 Walk Mill Lane, Kingswood.
